Brady: ‘That was a great win’

So if beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder, we’ll let Tom Brady slide when he begs to differ that Sunday’s grind-it-out 23-16 AFC East-clinching victory over the Dolphins wasn’t the prettiest of wins.

“That wasn’t ugly, that was a great win,” said the quarterback, who completed 24 of 40 passes for 238 yards and a touchdown but was under pressure all afternoon and sacked an uncharacteristic four times. “They made it tough on us, there’s no question about it. We fought hard, we made some terrific plays when we had to. They played really well; every single play was a challenge. We made some plays when we needed to, so it was a great win.”
